beautiful place to camp. trails not very scenic. the massive rain probably had something to do with all the standing water and snakes i saw. i would return but not in the middle of the summer in Alabama. what was i thinking?! lol

One of my favorite places in South Alabama. The trail is marked clearly and the trail conditions are great, and Open Pond is simply beautiful.

First to Review

This is an easy lake loop located in the Open Pond Recreation Area. The forested terrain is primarily longleaf pine and passes by several impressive live oak trees. Fishing piers are located on two of the lakes but all three lakes are easily accessible for fishing or fly fishing from several points along the trail.The recreation area has a really nice campground for both primitive and RV camping. Day hikers can also use the picnic area located between two of the lakes.
